Avocado Pasta

Is red pasta sauce getting old? I’m always trying to find other sauces for my pasta monsters, aka my two boys. Now that my second son is eating quite a bit, I try to make homemade as much as I can. This avocado pasta sauce is easy and tasty, with just a few ingredients. It doesn’t require cooking either so it’s perfect for leftover pasta.  I don’t know about you, but I make enough pasta for an army. It never fails, I always have leftover.

Tip: if your avocado isn’t really ripe try adding some olive oil. Also, my video says 2 garlic cloves, but half of one or one small one should be plenty.
